Dear Alistair,

Thank you so much for inviting me to the Lord Taverners Charity Lunch at the Club on Friday, I really enjoyed myself and thought the atmosphere within the room was excellent. 

Your choice of speaker with Ian Irving was absolutely perfect, he certainly kept everyone highly amused and as always.

Hi Ian

Great to see you once again last night, and your set more than added to the evening - it was sensational and the boys were ecstatic afterwards.
You get better with age, like a very fine wine - and your material is so fresh and original. Hope to be with you again before long.

Good Morning Ian,

A very big thank you for all your support at our lunch last week.
It was a great success and we have had several emails from guests who really enjoyed the day.  
As you know we were trying to change the formula to “stay fresh” whilst at the same time not be radical and I think that, with your help, we managed to achieve that.
